“The Skinny”: A Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt and the Jits coach for the famed “New England Cartel”, Renzo Gracie NH’s Nick Fiore is an extremely exciting prospect at just 23 years of age. Flanked by the top team in New England and grinding daily with the likes of Calvin Kattar and Rob Font, Fiore looks to be the next big prospect turned out by Tyson Chartier, Jake Mainini and the Cartel crew. Fiore hits the cage Friday night for the first time since the pandemic with lofty goals in mind as he makes his CES MMA debut against a familiar foe in Jay Ellis (who steps in on short notice to replace Shaquan Moore) and gunning for his second straight finish to open his professional career.
